Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a family history enthusiast (or as my family says "addict"). My knowledge may be limited, but I love share what I know. In my experience, to best way to get over the proverbial brick wall is to enlist the help of others . I hope I can help a few others bulldoze their brick walls through this amazing website.
Also, I feel having a photo of a loved one's grave help with create/maintain a connection.

This year (2010) for Christmas, all the members in my family did something of service in honor of my father. Becoming a photo volunteer is my gift of service.

If I create a memorial for your loved one, and you would like ownership transfered, just let me know.

One last thing. I noticed it's difficult to read my email address correctly. It's

RE: Edit tab
That is very kind of you, however I am not one that has to have all memorials I connect too, so I hope we can find close connected family to transfer to. Thank you for updating. I live in Tacoma, are you near?
You can use my personal email to answer that if you want, just wondering because of all the memorials you have.

Are you aware if you click on the edit tab 3rd over from the left at the top of your personal page it will show you all the edits that are pending for you to do?
If you are and are just too busy to do mine I do understand.

RE: Parker Family/Pioneer Cemetery
Thank you so much for all your efforts. You do a great job. I will pursue some of these suggestions--perhaps make a trip over myself to search archives :) Julie

Good evening.
Thank you for taking the 2 pictures. Whoever arranged their burials did not spend much money on the headstones. Cecil was my 1st cousin twice removed. I do not know if he had any children
Thanks again.

Pioneer Cemetery
I'm not sure if you know but the Pioneer Museum keeps the records for that cemetery and may have more info on the graves you are looking for. Just a suggestion :) Best of luck .

Alfred & Helen Frueh
Hello Brianna,

Thank you for taking the time to find and photograph Alfred's, Helen's and their daughter Jeanette's markers. I greatly appreciate it! Also glad to see that you took a "group" shot. That's always nice!
Might I have your permission to use the "individual" photos in my family tree software?

Kind regards,

Photo Request for Parker Family
Dear Brianna,
Thank you so much for your efforts in searching for the graves of William Parker (or John William "Bill" Parker) and his two little children Effa and Aaron Parker in the Pioneer Graveyard of Union Gap. "Bill" was my great-great grandfather, the first white settler to homestead in the Yakima Valley. The little town of Parker (not much left now) was named after him. Father and children died within two weeks of each other in 1875 in one of those epidemic illnesses that swept away families in those days, leaving my great-great grandmother to raise the three surviving children. So if the graves are there, it would likely be one adult size stone with two tiny ones, or just one stone for all three. He was a prominent pioneer, so I'm sure there was a marker originally. However, I also read in the cemetery info that in 1906 there was a flood that washed away a number of the graves. Maybe his was one of those. I wonder if it was recorded anywhere which graves were washed away? It also says that some who were initially buried at this cemetery were moved to Tahoma Cemetery in Yakima to larger family plots there. His wife and the other daughters, including my grandmother, who died as adults are buried in Tahoma. I wonder if there is a record somewhere of whose remains were moved from Pioneer to Tahoma? Guess I will have to try to pursue this further. Thanks again for trying. I'm a volunteer photographer too and am always so happy when I can make a successful "find." :) Happy searching. Julie
